Fibron Gets a New Start
UK-based custom subsea umbilical and cable solutions provider Fibron revealed its new branding to the offshore market during the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston last week.
Managing Director, Bruno Cianfini, reiterated the company change of ownership that took place in December and renewed company focus: “We and our new owners, Rubicon Partners, welcome this refreshing new start to the business, remain committed to continuing to serve our client base and see positive improvements all around on the horizon. It’s all very exciting.”
Fibron is a global supplier of subsea umbilicals to the offshore oil and gas, remotely operated vehicles (ROV), geophysical, diving, defense and oceanographic markets. The company, which designs, engineers and manufacturers umbilicals for safety- and process- critical applications around the world, was acquired by Actuant Corporation in 2008 before being acquired by Rubicon Partners late last year.
Sales Manager for the Americas, Marco A. Cano, said, “Formerly part of Cortland (Actuant), Fibron had for the last 11 years adopted the parent company brand but never forgot its Fibron BX roots which began in 1986. In this sense, what’s old is new again, but we’re now taking what we’ve done collectively for some time, building on our success by listening and serving our clients, helping them through the good times and bad, growing our business offerings and being rewarded for our efforts. It’s a refreshed new start.”
Sales Director, Dale Hislop, commented, “Leveraging our 32 plus years of experience and successful dedication to the subsea market, our market share in the oil and ROV, seismic and diving markets not only continues to grow but is highly recognized.”
Fibron has a manufacturing facility in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, UK, about 40 miles north of London, with sales offices in Aberdeen, Houston and Singapore.
